Hug your pets more often, showing them your love and care. It is celebrated annually on the second Sunday of September. September 2022 will be celebrated in 11.


The idea to create National Hug your Hound Day came up with a qualified dog handler from Chicago – Amy Moore. Thus, she wanted to show people the strength of the bonds between a person and his pet.

The holiday was created by a unique person with many years of experience working with dogs. Amy Moore is known in many countries of the world. She is able to train any dog, correct the consequences of improper upbringing. Special techniques have been created that allow you to quickly and effectively get in touch with the animal.

A dog handler helps dog owners build relationships with their pets. It makes the world a better and safer place for both animals and people.

Interesting facts

  • A dog can memorize several hundred words, so training is a matter of skill.
  • These animals are able to distinguish human emotions. If they see that a person is feeling bad, they try to support him, cheer him up, or simply lie down or sit next to the owner.
  • Dogs are capable of falling in love. This is due to the production of the hormone oxytocin. It is these animals that are most strongly attached to a person and have a hard time enduring parting.
